What makes GoGazella different from other running sites? The main concept behind the site is to help distance runners find training partners and connect with each other. You create a profile or simply upload your facebook profile, but GoGazella will ask you a few more questions about things that runners want to know; such as, your desired pace, races you have ran, location, and what type of race you are training for. Members can then search for training partners or friends based on these attributes.
The site also incorporates the ability to have discussions, privately or publically, by creating forums, blogs and groups. The social networking concept is not new and GoGazella seeks to integrate with your current social media as opposed to replace it. The website is fully integrated with facebook, twitter and flickr.
It’s very unlike me to be in on the ground floor of anything especially a new social site like this. But so far I am pleased with the interaction that I have had with the interaction that I have had. I have a lot of exploring to do yet but think this will be one of my regular sites to look at daily. I might even find some local runner friends through here.
Give it a try as it’s a totally free site, as GoGazella aims to become the premier running website that allows distance runners to share experiences, insights, and connect with one another. Visit http://www.GoGazella.com to read stories, ask questions, and connect with other runners.
